Ah yes, a new release from Chanel that's doing the rounds ey? Well, funnily enough this new foundation came out of nowhere really - no promotion, nada. 

Perfection Lumiere Velvet is the latest base from Chanel and having tried a fair few, it was inevitable this would come home with me. In fact, the twitter gods urged me into this. Promise

I thought I'd do a first impressions video as I haven't done many in my time - let me know if these kinda videos are you bag (baby) and I'm more than happy to film more. 

What appealed to me instantly was that the finish of the foundation airs more on the side of matte which for an oily-skinned gal like myself sounds like heaven in a bottle. It's got the same characteristics as Vitalumiere Aqua (blast from my past!) in that it gives a good amount of coverage, is lightweight and has a dewy finish but with a subtle sheen and matte finish. I found that as lovely as Vitalumiere Aqua is, the staying power just isn't there on my skin. 

So, dive on in and let me know what you think!



I'm sure an in-depth and full review will follow but for now I give you my first initial thoughts and show you how I apply it.

Hope you enjoy :)

FINALLY GETTING RID OF MY EMPTIES



Firstly, you might have noticed I've not posted in over a week. I've been having some family issues so my blog took a backseat, things are improving so if my posts are sporadic you'll know why.

I've got a lot of posts in the pipeline but it's just finding the time to get everything written up. Hopefully Easter will help!

I finally got round to filming an empties video a few weeks back and I've managed to declutter a lot of empty bottles and cans that had been stacking up for months. Hoarders unite!

Hope you enjoy :)

RIVER ISLAND LUSTLIST


I go through phases with River Island, sometimes I love it and other times I find nothing I like for months. I went in store today to check out their jeans as I've now officially fallen out with Topshop. Seriously, they couldn't be any less inconsistent with their jeans. I usually wear Jamie or Leighs but I've found recently that the sizing differs considerably between different shades. I can pick up a black pair and slide them on no problem but then again, I can pick up a blue pair and struggle to get them up my legs. So, I popped into River Island and found two pairs that fit like a dream. Go figure.

Whilst in store I noticed they had loads of gorgeous items in at the moment so I felt it only necessary to do a little 'lust list' of items - yes, pale pink features heavily. So sue me ;)

Anyone else loving River Island at the moment?
